Author Notes:
These treats capture a little of that summery cheer, sweet and a little savory, with a nice crunch from the nuts. However, if you prefer to go nut free, you can leave them out of the mixture and they still taste great! While I used blueberries here, your favorite berry (or mixture of berries) is also delicious.

Makes 24

  • 1 pint fresh blueberries, rinsed and stems removed
  • 12 ounces plain raisins
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened 5-grain cereal
  • 1/2 cup peanuts (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 Orange, zested and peeled
  • 1 5.3 ounce container plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Mixed berries, sliced
  1. Place the first 4 ingredients in your food processor (or first 3 if omitting nuts) and pulse until the mixture is well blended.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the chia seeds. Let rest 10 minutes.
  3. Using a tablespoon, take 2 scoops at a time and form into patties. Place on a parchment-lined sheet pan and refrigerate as you make the topping.
  4. Rinse and zest your orange (if you don’t have a zester, use a vegetable peeler to take only the orange part of the rind, and chop it up).
  5. Then, peel the orange and squeeze the juice from 3-4 pieces into your yogurt (chop the remaining orange slices for garnish or do what I did and enjoy the rest of the orange as you assemble 😉).
  6. Lay the berry 'patties' on a platter, and divide the contents of the yogurt mixture to spread over the tops. Garnish with the zest, berries and/or berries & chopped orange.
  7. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to two days.
